On October 27, 2011, Keith McIntosh presented “A Remote Tester’s Perspective: The Challenges and Solutions” at the Software Test Professionals Conference in Dallas, Texas.
Much has been written on the many challenges associated with remote testing locations whether they are onshore, nearshore or offshore. The notion of utilizing remote testing teams may be a scary challenge or dismissed without consideration. This is largely due to the distorted views projected by past examples of poor quality and communication barriers within remote testing projects. Attending this session provided participants with insight into the world of a remote tester and the struggles and challenges that need to be overcome.
